The BEST Cinnamon Apple Bread | Louella Reese

Back to Monday. To make Monday just a little sweeter, I’m sharing a recent bread recipe we have been all about. Seriously, we have made it twice within a week and are completely hooked. Also, I don’t think I’ve ever received so many DMs after posting something. When I shared a snap of this bread on my stories last weekend y’all were ALL about it! So obviously, I had to share the full recipe here on Louella Reese for you to reference back to and make sure that everyone who wanted the recipe has access to it. 

This summer and fall we were all about banana bread. I made three or four different variations basically every other week (if not every week). We kind of fell out of that come November/December with all the Christmas cookie baking. So now that, that is over, we’re back to our bread obsession. This cinnamon apple bread may be my favorite one out of all I’ve whipped up! I may give it a try next week bananas + apples and see how that goes. I’ll keep you posted! 

The recipe for this bread is quick, easy, and I say healthy because there is no refined sugar being added and instead of butter, I opted to us coconut oil. Which I believe makes it taste even better and a little more moist. So without further ado, the recipe…

  • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon 
  • 2/3 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup  softened coconut oil 
  • 2 eggs 
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla extract 
  • 1 1/2 cup flour 
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 cup almond milk 
  • 2 apples, peeled and chopped
  1. Preheat oven to 325F. Spray a 9x5inch loaf pan 
  2. In a medium bowl, mix brown sugar and cinnamon. 
  3. In a large bowl (or mixer), combine white sugar and coconut oil until smooth. Add eggs and vanilla, continue to beat on medium speed until well combined. Add in flour and baking powder. Mix well and then add milk. 
  4. Pour half the batter into grease loaf pan, place 3/4 of the chopped apples on top and pat into batter. Then pour remaining batter on top. Finish with apple slivers across the top. Bake for 45-50 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes and enjoy!

    Ooh, cinnamon and apple together are such a treat!
    This also looks like such an easy recipe to follow, which is great for me because I don’t bake nearly as much as I should!
